    Hi,

    I love the plugin but as I have a big blog, over 2500 posts, I also have a problem.
    Some of my earlier posts don't have featured images so they only show the title in the widget.
    Is there a way to limit the time span? So it only shows the random posts from the last 2 years?

    Would be great!

    Thanks for your great work.

    You could try http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/get-the-image/, my plugin support it.

    Actually I'm not set up any limit, I need to check the issue.

    By the way, thanks for the feedback :)

    Hi Satrya,

    I can asign featured images, that is not the problem, it is just a LOT of work :D As it is for over 1000 posts.

    If you could set up that time limit it would be the coolest thing :D

    Most welcome and deserved!

    Hi Satriya,

    Would it be possible to ad a standard image for when no featured image is available?
    That would help a lot.
    Something like what gravatar does when no custom avatar is chosen by a commenter they ad a standard grey man image :D

    Thanks
    Caroline

    Hello Caroline,

    How about if you try to install http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/get-the-image/, you only need an image on your post and the plugin will generate the thumbnail to display it on the random post widget.

    Hi Satriya,

    I tried that plugin, gave me posts with 2 featured images. Did not work well.
    But I solved the problem with another plugin: Default featured image
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/default-featured-image/

    With that plugin you can asign a default featured image for all posts that do not have a featured image already. And your plugin will show that default featured image also.

    Ok, that's great. For the default image, I'll addressed in the version when I have the time.

    Thanks for the link too :)

    I agree. This plugin is fantastic, but a time span limiter would make it perfect. If I could chose how long the date range is, it would be great for what I am doing with my site.
